2020 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

Honey coated pineapple, buttery candied orange, lemon zest, flowers and apricots seek and get your attention. Rich, lush, sweet and fresh with ripe and overripe pineapples slathered with honey on the palate, but with enough acidity to maintain freshness. 92-94 Pts

2017 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

With distinctive orange and tangerine accents on a superfluity of tropical fruits, there is a richness here that is tough to resist. The sultry, fruit-filled finish with its refreshing attitude is incredible. La Tour Blanche is one of the few Bordeaux cha 93 Points

2015 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 92

Loads of sweet, tropical fruit, apricot, orange rind and nectarine all coated with honey. Rich, sweet and fresh, the spice and vanilla in the end add to all that sweet, lush fruit. La Tour Blanche is one of the few Bordeaux chateaux that still includes a percentage of Muscadelle in the blend. 91 - 93 Pts

2014 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 92

Apricot, candied orange, honeysuckle, spice and pineapple, all soaked in honey let you know what you're in store for. Add in the vibrant acidity and you have a winner here. Freshness paired with sweetness, from a blend of 82% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle. 92 Points

2013 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 90

Tightly wound at the moment and not giving up much. The wine is on the mineral driven, honeyed citrus, spice and orange marmalade side of the style range, with a honeyed, lemon fresh and vanilla finish. This will probably develop well, especially for tasters looking to pair sweet wines with savory and spicy dishes. 90 Points

A solid preformance in this vintage. One of the few Bordeaux chateaux to include Muscadelle in the blend, the wine serves up vanilla tinged, tropical fruits, honey, flowers and spicy scents. The finish is sweet, fresh and offers good intensity. 92 Points

2010 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

Quite floral, with a nice mix of yellow and orange tropical fruits, a hint of vanilla, honey, apricots and overripe pineapple. Fresh, sweet, lush and lifted, this is delicious right now and should improve with ease for at least another 10-15 years. 93 Points

2007 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

Thick, rich, sweet, fat and intense, the wine displays a beautiful, nutty, tropical fruit, pineapple, apricot, vanilla custard and honeyed character. Sweet, juicy and delicious, there is good length found in the finish. 93 Points

2005 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

On the orange tropical side of the style range with loads of sweet, honey-coated apricots, spice and flowers, the wine balances all that juicy, luscious, honeyed sweetness with the right amount of racy acidity. This is drinking just great today. 93 Points

2003 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 93

This lusty beauty of a wine is packed with ripe and over ripe tropical fruit drenched in honey, pineapple, apricot, vanilla and spice. Fat, rich and lush, there is good depth and enough brightness to keep the wine vibrant. 93 Points

1990 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 89

Starting to fade, the fruit is lighter than I recall. There is more complexity in the honeyed, tropical, apricot and orange nose, than you are going to find in the medium bodied palate and its bright, citrus and apricot, sweet finish. This is not a wine to age further. 89 Points

This is a nice Sauternes that is clearly at, or slightly past its peak. The sweet honey fruit and rich textures are fading. I'd drink any remaining bottles sooner than later. 90 Points

1937 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 94

Amber in color, with the dark chocolate covered orange notes that pop up in very old Sauternes, the wine was still sweet, fresh, and lively, with loads of butterscotch, caramel, burnt vanilla, apricot and orange rind, with honeysuckle from start to finish. 94 Points

1935 Château La Tour Blanche  (Sauternes) 83

More acid than fruit, with a distinctive orange, tangerine and not fully ripe apricot accent, this was clearly on the downhill side of life. 83 Points
